Rocky Whitehead, R.Ph.

President

Rocky brings more than 30 years of long term care pharmacy experience to Excel Rx. Prior to becoming Excel’s president, Rocky spent 10 years building Pharmco, his Ohio-based, long term pharmacy. Pharmco grew to five pharmacies, situated throughout three regions of the United States, and serviced 24,000 beds with revenue of $95 million. Prior to Pharmco, Rocky served as president and co-owner of Home Care Pharmacy. Following Omnicare’s acquisition of the long term care pharmacy in 1989, Rocky served as President of Home Care and Regional Vice President of Omnicare’s largest, most profitable region. As he developed Pharmco, Rocky became disillusioned with the quality of the GPO’s services. He teamed up with other pharmacy owners to create Excel Rx to provide LTC and Home Infusion Pharmacies with a better option.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is the difference between a Group Servicing Organization (GSO) and a Group Purchasing Organization (GPO)?

A GPO is the entity that leverages the purchasing power of its members to obtain reduced pricing from vendors through its catalog of products. They then extend that awarded vendors pricing to its members. GPO’s generally prefer to be used as a single entity to its members.
As a GSO, we partner with multiple GPO partners for the flexibility in reviewing and providing back the best GPO pricing found for our members. We find the best option for them while providing a one stop contact approach to deliver on outstanding customer service. We go to work for them!

Is there a cost associated with joining Excel Rx's program?

No. It costs you nothing to join but membership in the Excel Rx program is priceless.

If I join your program, am I obligated to a minimum purchase commitment, in terms of either a dollar amount or a percentage of my monthly purchases?

No! Unlike some GPOs, there is no minimum purchase commitment with Excel Rx. Members only utilize those contracts that make financial sense for your business. We want to earn your business contract-by-contract. However, most of our members find that they achieve maximum value by utilizing Excel Rx for the majority of their purchases.

I currently belong to another GPO. Do I have to drop my current GPO if I join Excel Rx?

From Excel Rx's standpoint, the answer is no. We could become an additional option for you and you could utilize any Excel Rx contracts that are more competitive than what your current GPO provides. However, we recommend that you review the contract you have with your existing GPO to confirm your obligations or limitations. Your current GPO may or may not require that you use them exclusively.

My current GPO allows me to utilize their PDP network contracts to maximize my Medicare Part D reimbursement. Does Excel Rx provide this service, as well?

We do. Excel Rx members have access to GeriMed's PDP network. The rates on GeriMed's payor contracts are very competitive.

Your home page mentions RxOneShop. Can you tell me more about that?

Sure. RxOneShop is a sister company to Excel Rx. RxOneShop sources from multiple generic wholesalers and manufacturers. They pre-shop these sources every day to insure that you get the best available pricing every time you order.

Do you offer contract pricing for anything other than pharmaceuticals?

Yes. We offer very aggressive contact prices for capital equipment, furniture, office supplies, Med/Surg products, Telecommunication Plans, Computers, Food and Nutrition, Janitorial Supplies, and Med/Surg Distribution just to name a few.

How can I best determine if joining Excel Rx would be of financial benefit to my organization?

We can perform a quick, no obligation analysis to determine what savings you can realize by joining Excel Rx. Just give us a call and we'll get that ball rolling.
